of course he broke his arm the previous game. said he was definitely going to play in the super bowl. this is not for the squeamish. he insta grammed out a picture of his arm without the protective casing. and look at that. stitches. almost looks like a football itself. and thomas davis played in the super bowl with that arm. if you need to know anything about his dedication, that answers your questions. but that was quite a picture. we'll send it back to you. >> i thought that was a football. >> early morning. we appreciate that. it was a tough night for fans at the game. >> joining us now from california with that side of the story. >> very, very early. a lot of panthers are probably in bed right now just wishing this was all a bad dream.
some of them streaming out early upset about what was happening. it wasn't the type of game that panthers fans were used to seeing. we have a spectacular season. everyone was hoping they would end with a super bowl championship. but they came streaming out with their heads down. a few people upset. but they're looking forward to next year. a lot of people saying they felt outnumbered in the stadium. that they felt lost in a sea of orange. hoping that what they could have seen last night was also some more panthers fans. but the wruns i ran into were so excited so hopeful. hoping for beater turnout but didn't work out that way. so now what they're thinking about is next year and trying to remain positive. looking forward to another good season. and maybe anothera super bowl win next time around.
>> thank you. cam newton is young a probably will have many more super bowls to play in. if you need to drown your sorrows with crispy cream still doing their deal to celebrate. >> makes me feel better. >> 32 degrees. much more coverage of super bowl 50 ahead. >> coming up we'll head to charlotte for a live look at how that city is reacting to the panthers' trouble.

after last night's major upset and loss. there was no official watch party last night here but still hundreds of people flocked uptown to watch this game. many people from fayettville, raleigh, chapel hill. they told me there was no place they would rather be to watch the super bowl game than charlotte the home of the panthers. and those folks will be driving home this morning reeling from last night's loss. >> i definitely feel major disappointment. i think it's super sad. >> tough game but we made it. we made it to super bowl. we may have lost but what matters is that we rally around the team and we had a good time. >> all right. so we have to look at it that way. it is a major accomplishment and achievement to make it to the super bowl. but of course people don't want to just go to the super bowl. they want to win it. live in charlotte. >> thank you.
consolation there. >> i wasn't going to say anything. the competition within the game the super bowl commercials. >> coming up. (donkey sound) (elephant sound) there's a big difference between making noise, (tapping sound) and making sense. (elephant sound) (donkey sound) when it comes to social security, we need more than lip service. our next president needs a real plan to keep social security strong. (elephant noise) hey candidates. enough talk.
>> called the best commercial of super bowl 50. >> of course, i like that one too. opinions will vary but one thing is for sure this year's ads took on a new tone and may have stolen the show. here's a look at some of the top ones. this commercial featuring a hoard of weaner dogs in hot dog costumes charging across the field is definitely a crowd pleaser. >> did you find everything ok, sir? >> this 5d worth a million dollars to the california man who designed it one of three crash the super bowl contest.
>> and then there's this one called the strangest ad of the night puppy monkey baby. this is an ad for mountain due's kick start. the ad sought to show that great things go together. mountain due, juice, and caffeine. so there you have it. >> it's weird. but maybe you'll remember it. >> the licking of the face. >> one of the process folks, you bet on which is the first commercial that airs after kickoff. so is it a beer commercial this or that. and we all thought it was a gatorade commercial. it was a workout. all of a sudden they take a drink of middle class lobe ultra -- mick lobe ultra. >> i remember that. >> at least they were more light hearted. last year the super bummer? >> super bummers. >> all right.

johnson county one of the counties on delay this morning due to the possibility of some ice. so we have an accident coming in here near four oaks. both directions affected near strickland. they do have a detour in place there. if you're traveling on the freeway we are in good shape. dry here northbound. up to u.s. 15. 50540 westbound is moving fine. it's on time this morning. >> thank you. >> a lot of talk about the super bowl on social media this morning. dunkin' donuts' unbelievable selection of breakfast sandwiches freshly made all day -- and now you can enjoy two english muffin egg and cheese breakfast sandwiches for $4. that's breakfast whenevs. this is connor like so many kids, he was missing things in school -
